Roofing (cont., pg. 9)



What Your Roofing Contractor Will Do

Some house designs require that roofing be done in two stages.

The house shown above has a covered front porch.  The shingles for the porch roof were left off until the brick was completed.

The roofer then returned to install shingles and flashing.

Note the horizontal flashing between the window and shingles.

Flashing was caulked and painted to match brick color.

You must have flashing anywhere shingles meet brick or siding.

‚óŹ The roofer must add roofing tar to cover exposed nail heads.¬† A few nail heads will be inevitably exposed on ridge cap shingles and elsewhere.

As shown above, roofers nail boards into steep roofs to use as platforms and to prevent falls.

Holes will be left in shingles after these boards are removed.  The holes must be covered with roofing tar.

‚óŹ Roofers should clean up after themselves daily, throwing all waste materials into the dumpster you have on site.
